Red plastic garbage bags are mostly found in health care facilities that dispose of medical waste. This includes biologicals, pathologicals, cultures, and infectious agents possibly used in research laboratories. Any of these or similar items must be handled according to the state’s laws. Failing to comply can result in hefty fines that can put any service provider out of business. On a less serious note lifters love using large red garbage bags when the holidays roll around. All the toys are placed inside and are conveniently dropped off by Santa Claus. Browse our selection of green trash bags, available below.
